@AB Bride:  Different website-same people.

Even when you are giving stuff away- china cabinet,4 drawer filing cabinet,  armoire, sofa and chairs, patio furniture etc- the losers don’t show up when they said they would, show up with a car when we told them they would need a truck, come by themselves when we told them they would need at least 4 people for the armoire etc etc etc .

We’ve given up trying to help this way. We just take stuff to the thrift shop.

@AB Bride:  The only online buy/sell I ever had any success with was a local textbook swap group. Other than that, I’ve just started donating and selling to charity shops.

Ugh, I hear you. I’m moving, so I’m selling all my furniture on Craigslist and a similar FB group. I got a ton of emails about my bed, but already I am having buyers back out. It’s so frustrating.

I’ve also noticed a lot of buyers are very short and not friendly at all in their responses (especially the men). I had one guy tell me to text him my address and he’d come pick up my bed right away. That’s all he wrote. No hello, no consideration for my time. He ignored the line I had in the post about not being able to give up the bed until the weekend. Just rude.

I’ve always been a good buyer, so I am surprised by how lousy others are! I definitely couldn’t be one of those people who do this for a living either.
